Inclement Weather Closings

As a general rule, IVCC will be open during inclement weather.

Weather conditions often vary across IVCC's 2,000-square-mile district; students and staff should use their best judgment when deciding whether to travel to campus from their location.

In the event the college does close, that decision will be broadcast as early as possible on district radio stations (see list below) and on the top of the IVCC home page. In addition, the college's automated attendant phone message will be updated, so please dial 815.224.2720.
